Story

I made a visit at the weekend to see 15 little people who are all disabled and were abandon by their parents.
They all live together in one house which doesn't have much in it except a toilet and one sofa. The children are delightful and are happy but just need a little help to keep them going! They all help each other out when having food & drink and sit together most of the day & night.

I would like to make a little difference to these children by helping them to grow their own vegetables and fruit plus help them develop
so they can continue living happily together - they receive about 60,000 Naira a month for nappies, food, electric which is about £120!! so not much at all when you consider the amount of money nappies are - which they use loads of them because most of the children find it hard walking etc. The children are looked after by 2 young people only about 18 & 20 years old themselves who are doing a fantastic job with very little help or money but they have both taken on a big responsibility.

I hope you guys don't mind me posting this information but I was really taken by these children and want to do what I can to help. I want to try and buy them musical instruments like drums, triangle's, tambourines, bells, xylophone etc.(instruments that don't need batteries) to help stimulate them and to encourage their development and singing, which they love. I would also like to buy some mosquito nets - they all sleep on a hard tile floor at the moment but we are getting some thin mattresses for them to sleep on which they can wash and dry quickly.

I know there are lots of orphanages all over the world but I feel those who have disabilities sometimes get overlooked. If anyone can help me in anyway please let me know or if anyone would like to donate £1, that would be fabulous. xx Thanks for taking the time to read my post #LetsMakeADifference
